Blood donations drop because of AIDS fear WASHINGTON (AP) — Unfounded fears of getting AIDS are causing a serious national shortage of donated blood for transfusions, blood bank officials said Thursday. They released a poll indicating more than one-third of Americans think — contrary to wide scientific belief — that people can contract the deadly disease by giving blood. They said there would soon be radio and television ads trying to dispel such ideas. Unusual blood shortages began showing up last summer and then seemed to worsen along with national publicity surrounding actor Rock Hudson's death from AIDS and controversies over school attendance by young victims, said Gilbert Clark, executive director of the American Association of Blood Banks. On Thursday, he declared, "We are having a serious blood shortage across the country." The situation "is not life- threatening" at this point, but elective surgery is being postponed in many areas of the nation and inventories of blood for possible emergencies have been greatly reduced, Clark said. He said he could give no national shortage estimate, but he did say local shortages were being reported at 1 percent to 13 percent below normal levels. Many blood centers "operate on a basis of having just enough to take care of transfusion needs at that time," he said. Dr. Eugene Berkman, president of the blood bank association, said that in case of a national emergency, "if we needed 50,000 to 100,000 units of blood, this just would not be available." He said about 12 million units are donated each year to all U.S. sources. "It seems obvious that a major contributing factor is serious public misunderstanding about both the blood donation process and the ways that AIDS is transmitted," Berkman said. About half of the nation's donated blood comes to blood banks and about half to the American Red Cross, which has reported shortages but not to the extent that the blood bank officials did.
